I was interested in purchasing a multifamily investment property, but I had absolutely no experience with that type of venture. Joe Dressman educated me on the on the various aspects of the property search, financing, and purchase, which made me feel so much comfortable with the entire process. In fact, Joe did such a great job helping me find the perfect property in 2009 that I purchased a second multifamily property the following year with his help. I would recommend Joe without reservation to anyone interested in residential real estate! — Peter

I was extremely pleased to work with Joe Dressman on my home purchase. I had previously worked with another realtor who tried to transfer his own wish list onto me and tell me where I would or would not want to live. I had given up my home search when a friend introduced me to Joe. He was great at helping me find the place that was right for me and my lifestyle. I was also a first-time buyer, and he really helped me understand the process. — Rocky

After residing in Seattle for 35 years my husband and I decided to move to Portland. Joe Dressman helped guide us patiently through this transition. Joe did a wonderful job of introducing us to the city. He really knows the neighborhoods and had a good sense of which neighborhoods would suit us best. During our exploration of condominiums and single family homes Joe was always mindful of our requirements and narrowed the focus to properties we would genuinely have an interest in. He listened and he delivered. Joe professionally guided us through both the negotiation and closing process. We could not have selected  a better realtor. — Patti & Eric

I would like to acknowledge Joe Dressman for his awesome Real Estate expertise and professionalism. My partner and I had been thinking of buying a second home on the coast and knew Joe and mentioned to Joe what we were looking in a beach home as well as our current level of interest in buying. Joe had a no pressures approach in helping us and when we eventually got to the point we were ready to buy knew the important questions to ask and steps to take to make sure we located the right property for our family, made the right offer, asked for and received the right inspections during our offer period, and closed with a clear conscience that we had made the right decisions. Joe kept our personal and financial interests in mind from the beginning of our search to that first sunset looking over the Pacific Ocean after we closed. We highly recommend Joe to help you keep your peace of mind during any of your real estate deals.  — Joe & Dale

I worked with Joe to buy my first house. I looked for over a year before I was ready to buy. Joe was accommodating and patient, never making me feel rushed with this important decision. Once I found my house, the closing was especially complicated and Joe always worked towards my best interest. I feel very confident in Joe’s skills and can’t recommend him highly enough. — Megan

Does it sound like a cliche to say Joe went above and beyond for me? Well, he did, so I’ll say it. He gave me great insights on the properties I was interested in, excellent guidance on what to avoid, and always made me feel like a family member whom he wanted to make sure got the right property for my situation or not make a sale at all.— Kristen

Buying your first home can be a very intimidating task. With Joe’s insight on the Portland real estate market and customer centric focus, I felt informed and comfortable about making one of the biggest financial decisions in my life. In the end, I found a great home that I love and a great realtor that I would recommend to my friends and family. — Alan

When Joe helped me buy a house, he did far more work understanding me as a person, instead of just getting into a car with me to look at potential properties. During our first meeting, Joe invested the time to get to know me and my goals as a homeowner. We developed a list of key criterias that would fit all I wanted my house and yard to be, as well as the expectations I had for the neighborhood I would live in. He used that information to identify properties that were within my range, fit my key criteria and were appealing to my life and goals for the next many years. The house I bought was among the first houses Joe showed me. As we transitioned from searching for a house into the buying process, Joe was very organized, effective and complete in his efforts. Joe had the ‘map’ I needed to follow to get from interested buyer through to a homeowner. He helped me follow the progression through the map, every step of the way. Joe was always timely with communications and support during the closing process. He would be sure to contact me regularly, even if it was to let me know that there were no new developments for the time being. Joe was professional and sincere with me the whole time I worked with him. I felt comfortable and secure that Joe was being honest and open about all aspects of the home buying process and was a strong advocate for me as the buyer. I had complete trust in Joe as a representative of my interests and highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a true professional that devotes the time and effort to you as an individual. — Patrick

Selling a home can be stressful, but Joe Dressman has a gift for keeping things calm, clear, and straightforward. We can’t say enough good things about our experience with him. The guidance we received was spot-on and Joe was tireless in paying attention to the little details that helped us attract and secure a buyer. — Molly & Jeff
